Unfortunately HacBurn also has a problem in common with Xfburn: no support
for DVDs. DVDs are now extremely common media, and including a optical disc
utility that doesn't support DVD at all would be bad, IMHO.
I also came upon this link:
It seems that GnomeBaker development is definitely at a standstill,
unfortunately. There's a project called GnomeBakerNg which is supposed to
continue development (http://libburnia.pykix.org/wiki/GnomebakerNg), but it
doesn't seem to have actually had any work done on it.
This effectively means that Brasero is the only GTK/GNOME burning utility
that's being actively maintained, and it's loaded with GNOME dependencies
(although GnomeBaker is, as well).
At this point it seems like all I can hope for is that either Graveman
development starts back up, or Xfburn makes dramatic progress in the
near-future. I've even been looking at NeroLinux 3 (blasphemy, I know),
which has gotten some good reviews.
I don't mean to turn the CD/DVD burner issue into a personal piss and moan
session. I'm just worried about the Xubuntu devs having to ship a woefully
feature-bare (and in some cases, buggy) app with Gutsy.
